morning to you. not a lot of detail today. the fbi still hasn't made to it the incriminate scene in benghazi but secretary clinton will give a classified account of the attacks on the u.s. consulate in libya. witnesses tell cbs news that there was never an anti-american protest outside of the consulate. instead they say it came under planned attack. that's in direct contradiction to the administration's account of the incident. it comes at a time when there are calls for more information from capitol hill and complaints that the administration has not been forthright. >> i'm just stunned and appalled that there wasn't better security for all of the american personnel at that consulate given the high threat environment. >> reporter: now, under law state must establish a panel to investigate the attacks, report to congress within 60 days. today secretary of state hillary clinton will outline what she is and is not willing to share. what's clear, charlie is that the public won't get a detailed account of what happened until after the presidential election. >> margaret, brennan thank
. >> senior correspondent john miller joins us now. what's going on. why can't the fbi get in there and do what they were sent there to do? >> the security situation on the ground there is so brittle that the libyan government is very reluctant to have a team of a couple of dozen fbi people going to benghazi, when the only people they could get to protect them are militias, and they know that the crime scene is long ago compromised, trampled through. it may or may not yield anything terribly important and if it does, if will yield it later. it is a difficult situation. >> any more information on the question of how much this may have been a preplanned attack? >> there is. and i think you have kind of put your thumb on the pulse of the problem there. in -- in these groups, we look for -- we want a wiring diagram, an organized picture, with al qaeda who ordered it. this group assisted. the problem is, the lines have blurred between these groups and their members. an sawar sharia are popping up in all of these countries. not al qaeda, but they are reading from the al qaeda narrative and they
, what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning, kate. we understand that an fbi team of special agents has arrived here in benghazi. they're keeping a low profile for security reasons and are expected to at some point begin investigating what exactly happened at that consulate. they're going to sift through the ashes and look for any clues that can identify any individuals involved in that attack. we know that the u.s. military has deployed its resources, including drones and other intelligence gathering mechanisms to try to keep an eye and ear out for any of these people involved. they're getting a lot of cooperation from the libyan government. the libyan government says that they believe this was a pre-planned attack, not an outburst of spontaneous violence. and they're also saying that they have four individuals in custody that they are questioning who may have possibly important information that could benefit the americans. they also have several other individuals under surveillance. but as we've seen in the past, one of the more difficult things here on the ground is to actually m
the fbi has to make this determination. they are still not in benghazi. state department will say, those that al qaeda and aqim is active in the region. there's arms coming from mali into libya and this is one of the countries where you have a new government that isn't in fully control of security in the area. >> they don't have the evidence, they are waiting for the fbi to investigate. do they have anything to suggest there might be a link? >> they don't say that they have evidence either way. what they do and talk about is one of the extremist groups in the are a, who is believed to be behind this but still don't have the evidence to assert that at this point may have some relationship with al qaeda. they just can't say either way. >> with us now arizona senator john mccain. senator, pleasure to have you here. before we talk politic, let me ask you this question. you knew the ambassador. admired the ambassador. what do you worry about here in the fact that there seems to be an inability to find out what happened, whether it's spontaneous or was there some plan? >> well to start with, c
. the fbi will also go over and do a forensic examination. and with that, we'll start to get indications of who might have been responsible. but ultimately, we still are going to be very reliant on the government of libya. and thankfully, they have said and done all the right things thus far to pursue this and also secure our institutions in the future. >> thanks for your perspective this morning. i appreciate it. >> my pleasure, good to see you. >> you too. it's 7:09, here's savannah. >>> thanks. senator john mccain was a key advocate for early u.s. intervention in libya and a friend of chris stevens. good morning. >> good morning. >> do you believe that ambassador stevens was the intended target of terrorists? >> i do. i think the indications of how this attack was carried out clearly indicate that's the case. and i'd remind you, savannah, that they just went through a very bloody conflict and there's thousands of weapons in libya. they have a very weak government. this is their first experiment in democracy. the al qaeda elements are throughout the country. their borders are poor, and
there they say is off limits because of an intelligence matter. according to the fbi isn't even in benghazi yet. they haven't secured that site is how journalists can wander through. >> the "new york times" reporting a major story attack in libya was a major blow to cia efforts, that was an important place and they were watching some important terrorist activity and those cia agents have been compromised in terms of their ability to do what they wanted to do. >> i'm sure there are many agencies active in that area, so responsibility for security for the ambassador and his staff falls on diplomatic security which is part of the state department, which is why they are under fire and why there's so much pressure to fill in some of the blanks. journalists are trying to do that. the state department has to produce a report in 60 days to congress. it's not clear how detailed that information will be. >> a lot more news. >>> southern california firefighters are battling two fast-moving wildfires. one near los angeles and east of san diego near the mexican border on the campo indian reservation. no inj
